Mexico City legalizes abortion

While the U.S. took a significant step backwards in its defense of a woman's right to choose with a recent Supreme Court ruling, Mexico City has taken a giant leap forward by legalizing abortion in the Federal District of Mexico City. Aside from Cuba and Puerto Rico, Mexico City is the only place in Latin America where abortion is now legal.

Supporters called the legislation legalizing abortion "a triumph for women's rights." Opponents called it "support [for] juvenile imprudence [and] unexpected pregnancies."
